This article deals with the effect of a chosen syntactical stylistic device – enumeration and its influence on the overall perceiving of the language of a selected fictional prose. Stylistic devices used by an author in a source book form an inseparable part of the language the book is written in. Not only the content but also the language made the book successful and perceived by critics positively. In this short study we have focused on enumeration which represents a syntactical device presented in this literary piece in a frequent occurrence. This study provides the most representative examples of enumeration with our interpretation and findings concerning the role and the effect of this particular syntactical stylistic device in perceiving the literary piece and the main protagonist. The analytic approach of the study contributes to the research of the language and proves how the form in which the selected literary piece is written can accent its quality.
